Abstract

Current trends in managing educational institutions are adversely affected by many facets brought by globalization. Thus, this study sees the need to review quality management in tertiary education by employing empowerment and fairness in all institutional systems. The mean Cronbach Alpha of .94 for reliability coefficients of the three scales: Participative Management (PM), Organizational Procedures (OP) and Organizational Commitment (OC) were triangulated by employing a thematic analysis of the randomly focus-grouped data from the employees of the tertiary institutions. A multivariate analysis showed no significant difference when the three variables (PM, OP and OC) were analyzed by age, sex, type of work and years of service. However, data showed a significant difference in the level of participative management when participants are analyzed by sex. Likewise, there was a significant difference in the level of participative management and organizational commitment when participants are analyzed by type of work. Their high level of commitment and the institutions’ high practice of participative management and fairness in dealings with the employees further revealed a significant report of higher organizational commitment and work performance for employees in the tertiary level. Implications of the findings are further discussed in this study.
